that pushes a lot of people away even though we might share some ideas with that party. guest: thanks for the call. i think that is overstated in terms of what the caller said. but i think there's a point to it. i found the talk about president obama's birth certificate, where he was born, whether he was christian or muslim, i thought that was obnoxious and wrong on the merits and politically very damaging. i wrote a piece in the wall street journal a couple years ago taking on donald trump because he was doing footsy with the birth certificate. when republicans begin to play footsie with this kind if conspiracy. and things like that, it's problematic. more broadly, i do think there's a problem, and undeniable problem. even whether a person thinks there's merit, there is a problem republicans are not free to middle-class voters and is sending a signal to hispanic people, the single largest demographic in the country, that you are not particularly welcome in this party. what the republican party has to do is find a way to appeal to them that is consistent with its principles but is als
